Full Circle’s Talking Stick Festival began as a way to showcase and celebrate Indigenous art and performance to a wider audience. From its humble beginnings, this unique and exciting event has grown into a full 2-week Festival held annually in February at locations across Vancouver.
This year celebrates the 19th Annual Talking Stick Festival, proudly presented on the traditional unceded territories of the Coast Salish People. The theme for 2020 is Chén̓chenstway, “upholding each other, lifting each other up”, and this year’s festival promises to do just that for everyone involved.
This festival of extraordinary Indigenous performance and art features some of the best emerging and established Indigenous artists Turtle Island has to offer, with a lineup of theatre, storytelling, writing, music, spoken word, dance, film, visual arts – and more!
